Where was Sasha Obama during her fatherís farewell address?

It was one of the more emotional moments of President Obama’s farewell address. His eyes swelling with tears, he spoke of his wife, “Michelle LaVaughn Robinson of the South Side,” and then, of his pride in their two daughters, Malia and Sasha.

“Under the strangest of circumstances you have become two amazing young women,” Obama said. “You are smart and you are beautiful. But more importantly, you are kind and you are thoughtful and you are full of passion.”

“And,” he added, pausing for applause, “you wore the burden of years in the spotlight so easily. Of all that I have done in my life, I am most proud to be your dad.”

When his family joined Obama on the stage, at the close of his farewell speech, they held hands and waved at the audience, creating an image of the family that mirrored a similar one from more than eight years ago, at Obama’s victory rally in the same city. But one member of the family was missing: the youngest, Sasha.

Do you honestly think that any school administration would tell a kid they can’t do a makeup test because their father, the President of the US is giving a major speech.

Educators are arrogant and self righteous, but not that much.

We home schooled our kids, otherwise, I would have looked for excuses to buck their little fiefdoms. It’s in my blood.

(my parents sent me to a catholic elementary school. I was a major troublemaker and didn’t take any garbage from the old penguins, one of whom was sent to jail a few years later for child abuse.)

Is she the one that snuck away from the secret service detail in Hawaii to go to a rave party and got arrested for vandalism?

Am I the only person who thinks Malia’s “tears” at the speech were faked?

Wherever she was, it’s probably none of our business.
